Doctor Who Tardis Birthday Cake

We are huge Doctor Who fans in this house. So when my oldest had his last birthday I was not surprised when he requested a Tardis birthday cake. It was fun and easy to create this cake.

I baked a cake mix in a 9x13 glass pan and covered it in blue frosting. I didn't plan ahead to make sure I had the right shade of Tardis blue. So I wish it was darker, but my son didn't mind. After covering it in blue, I quikly piped some outlines of door and windows and did some writing. Nothing fancy, but lots of fun.

What will it "Bee" Gender Reveal Cake

I was asked to do a gender reveal cake. The inside had three pink ombre layers with buttercream frosting. Unfortunately I wasn't there to get pictures of the inside, once it was cut. But I bet it was cute! The family loved it and are very excited.

Pink Petal Cake

I spent my summer visiting family out of state and got to celebrate birthday's with families that we usually miss out on. My baby sister turned 27 and I had to make her a pink cake.
I made a white cake from a box with a raspberry cream filling that I made up on the spot. The frosting is a butter cream recipe I found on pinterest here.

At the last minute I decided to put fresh garden raspberries on top and dusted them with powder sugar.

Neopalatin Cheesecake Cake

I made this cake for my dads Birthday. I followed the recipe from here
It was super rich and very delicious!

Super Mario Brothers Birthday Cake

My Son wanted a Super Mario Brothers cake this summer. I was mixing up the frosting colors after midnight, and that was obviously a mistake. Somehow I got a funky teal color instead of sky blue, but oh well! It was super humid this summer as well, so the frosting was sweating a lot as well. It was still fun. Everything was done with Wilton's Buttercream frosting.

Big Hero 6 Baymax cake and cupcakes

It's Birthday season around here. My son wanted a Baymax cake from Big Hero 6. We love that show. For this body I baked a cake mix in the pampered chef batter bowl. Once the cake was cool I covered it in homemade marshmallow fondant and made the head, arms and legs from fondant as well. It was a really hot and humid day, so the fondant struggled and the gel icing ran for his eyes, but my son loved him and he tasted good!

We also made Baymax cupcakes for his classroom treat. All the kids loved it.
We found the idea on pinterest. Using a large round tip I swirled white butter cream onto the tops of our cupcakes. Then placed large marshmallows with Baymax eyes drawn on, on top.

This was a Red Velvet cake with cream cheese filling. All the frosting is butter cream. I did buy a tube of black Wilton frosting from hobby lobby for the black details.

Lego Movie Blue and Gold Banquet Cake

Now that my boys are getting older, I am the cub master for our pack. For our Blue and Gold banquet this year we picked the theme "Everything is Awesome!" from the Lego movie. I used the silicone molds found on amazon for the large lego guy on the main cake. The smaller lego guys are made with the wilton candy melts. Everything else is from cake mixes and my usual butter cream frosting.
